    Heya @alis_haxr, welcome bud:)

    Interestingly, I guess it depends what you mean by "normal" - it's not an easy state of mind, so if normal means healthy and there's no problem, then no. But many many peeps experience this, so if normal means fairly common, then yes. Feel free to start a thread in "Health & Wellbeing" if you'd like to talk more about this, and sorry you're feeling depressed <3

    Take care!x

    Hey welcome

    How long have you felt like this?I think It is healthy/normal/natural to feel sad for a bit and not know why.  But Is only feeling depressed if its been  for awhile and consistant. - i think.

    your life could be perfect, it could be shit or somewhere inbetween- regardles of how it is - your feelings are valid & dont need to justify it

    If you think something is wrong is best to go see your gp. The NHS website actually have a quick self assesment thing you could try - its not a diagnose thing though as says only health professional can do that just an insight to possible symptons.
    https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/clinical-depression/ It also has a link on there to say the difference between low mood & depression which says the difference in whats a natural way to feel to compared when could need help
    Kindness begins from the understanding that we all struggle.

    I often find myself depressed and anxious with no apparent reason. Sometimes I know what has triggered my mood but others I do not know. These are the days I want to be left alone and find I often get snappy
